Tyler S. Grant

Tyler S. Grant (b. 1995) has written numerous award-winning works for concert bands, marching bands and chamber groups; many of which have been performed across the world and by musicians of all levels. His wind band music is regularly found on Editor’s Choice List’s from various international music distributors in addition to being performed by various district and state-wide honor bands. His work Panoramic Fanfare was recently named a winner in the 2014 “Call for Fanfares” Competition hosted by the Dallas Wind Symphony; the fanfare has since been performed by collegiate/professional ensembles in the United States, Canada, and British Columbia. He regularly accepts commissions for new works and produces new publications for bands and chamber groups each year. While he has never formally studied composition, he credits his mentors William Owens, Brian Balmages, and Ryan Fitchpatrick as being pivotal to his success as a composer and a conductor. Notable performance venues of his work include: The Midwest Clinic, The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, Carnegie Hall, and numerous state-wide and national music conventions.

In addition to his writing, Tyler regularly serves as guest conductor/clinician for school districts and honor bands at the elementary, junior-high, and high-school levels. His rehearsal style has been described as “engaging and energetic, sprinkled with humor and the occasional life lesson”. Tyler has contributed numerous interviews to articles in School Band & Orchestra Magazine, The Instrumentalist Magazine, and recently was a contributing author in Alfred Music Publishing Company’s Sound Innovations: Ensemble Development series.

Tyler is currently pursuing his Bachelor's Degree in Music at the University of Alabama, where he studies conducting with Randall Coleman. He holds membership in the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP), International Tuba Euphonium Association (ITEA), and the National Association for Music Education (NAfME).
